Three years ago, Howie, the husband of Livingston resident Stacy Feintuch, and father of Amanda, 15 and Lily, 13, passed away from a sudden heart attack.

According to Stacy, Howard was a fit and healthy man who received regular checkups and was under the care of a heart specialist for high cholesterol. He exercised, ate well and took his meds.

“There were no warning signs,” said Stacy. “I have learned a lot through this experience, and cannot express how important it is for people to get regular checkups and test their cholesterol.”

Stacy credits her daughters with encouraging her to start the Fund.

“Howie, a Jersey City defense attorney, was a very kind and giving man,” said Stacy. “He often took the girls places and taught them about the importance of giving back. He truly instilled this idea in my girls and they have been asking me for a while to do something like this in honor of their father that would benefit others.”
